Heckingbottom has been in charge since Lee Johnson left to take over at Bristol city, and has guided Barnsley to the league one play offs and success in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final at Wembley.

Barnsley take a 3-0 lead into the second leg of the play off semi-final at Walsall on Thursday night, and fans clearly want the Barnsley born Heckingbottom to stay on a permanent basis.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Thursday's game he said that while talks with the club are continuing, he's not expecting any resolution before the end of the season.
